When I saw this piece it had alot of impact on me instantly. It's been brillantly captured to the point where it's touched me dramatically.

The tree in the middle diverted my attention to the background where the trees on the right block out the light but on the left the light seeps through.

This piece is incredible and even though pictures similar to this one have been used before the layout and contrast of yours is more eye catching and appealing.

Not only is this very beautiful but it has meaning. It just shows how far you can go with artwork.

Keep up the good work

I just surfed through the newest deviations... and then I saw THIS.

It is a magnificent piece of artwork because the high amount of contrasts work like eye-catchers.
The tree separates the picture in two (nearly symmetrical) parts. Human beings tend to like symmetry: so do I and that is why I clicked on the thumbnail.

The rays of the sun behind the tree are somehow mysterious - the whole forest seems to be surreal. The cold colors create a distance, but at the same time this distance is impressive.
As the observer, you seek new details - and you find them.
The twigs on the tree make the scene interesting and thrilling. Eyes are crossing the picture, looking for the end of the forest: but you can only see trees. Starting with one tree in the foreground, and four trees in the middleground, trees are multiplying and endlessness can only be assumed directly BEHIND the tree. Where the light comes from, there seems to be a way through the forest.

The twigs and the dark forest - as a contrast to the light of the sun, make your artwork as that what it is.
The editing is very good, really.
I think this picture shows that you are a talented artist and you see details.

Regards from Germany,
Jonathan :)

Funny how photos are different for each viewer. The light behind the tree made me think of sci-fi. The contrast between the dark tree trunks and the snow adds a little spookiness. Great for aliens. A fun shot. Now you know I´m not an expert - but you didn´t take it just for them, did you? :) (Smile)

A tree, like any other, can be an amazing masterpiece. Only with the right minds does they appeal to you. The dark gray trees and snow, and the lights, the lights, the lights are absolutly amazing. One single word describe this, wow. <3

What a beautiful picture....
It's a shame there's so many spam comments. ;^^ But then again I guess that's kind of expected seeing as how this is one of the most popular pictures on this website.
